Marvelous Little Toy from Peter, Paul and Mary's children's album: Peter, Paul and Mommy.

It is a really fun classic and probably a crowd pleaser the way you are presenting it with kids coming in on the chorus... I think it might work well for you.

"It went ZIP when it moved and
POP when it stopped, and
WHIRRRR when it stood still,
I'll never know just what it was
and I guess I never will."

I cry when I hear it, and laugh too.

Hi - I think that ZIP, POP, WHIRR song was why they made the movie A Mighty Wind!

I like the Buckwheat Zydeco album Choo-Choo Boogaloo. You'd have to learn the songs, but they are fairly simple.

My daughter got 2 copies. I'd be happy to donate one to your cause. Send your address in Thailand and I'll ship it off to you. I'm andy@gemut.com.
